Discover France history

Introduced in January 1999, the web site covers dozens of pertinent topics, plus navigation to chapters about Paris, 21 provinces, and French overseas territories (including coverage of the former colonial empire).

Discover France logo

Some of our topics include information on French art and architecture, cuisine, cultural traditions, demographics, education, government, history, holidays, language, literature, museums, performing arts, religious heritage, shopping, sightseeing attractions, transportation systems, travel tips, wine knowledge, and much more!

A Feature Articles section offers an outlet to independent contributors who wish to submit articles of educational interest, personal travelogues, recommendations, or any material that is not readily classified under the site's navigation structure.

A realtime news feed provides current events coverage from a variety of international news sources, updated several times daily. Visitors will also find current listings of cultural events and entertainment, organized by province and the Paris region.

Our Travel Center provides visitors with the capability to make online reservations at over 50,000 hotel and hostel properties, private apartments, bed & breakfasts, and vacation rentals worldwide. In addition, it offers airline tickets, airport shuttles, car rentals & leasing, group tours, museum cards, bus / Métro / rail passes, international travel protection (including medical coverage), and travel accessories.

The DiscoverFrance Boutique offers visitors a special selection of francophile products — including French literature, maps, tour guides, fine art prints & posters, music CDs, and movies on disc or videotape.

Why should I book my hotel, hostel, or other lodging through Discover France?

There are no booking fees to reserve hotel rooms, hostel beds, and other accommodations through Discover France. The prices we list are the lowest available rates offered by the properties and booking services with whom we have partnered. Those services pay Discover France a small commission for each reservation, because we help them to contain their marketing costs. The modest revenue helps us to maintain and update the many information resources available to you on our web site.

Perhaps one of the most significant advantages to you, our client, is that we act as an advocate on your behalf – in the event that you have a complaint or any issue with the service which was promised to you by a property. Our partners are incentivized to cooperate with us in the investigation of any complaint, because they benefit from the volume of guests we refer to them. We're in your corner!

Please, allow us the opportunity to demonstrate our high standards of service to you. We look forward to your candid feedback. Thank you for your confidence, and enjoy your travels!
